Mr. Reno Omokri has described the youth of Nigeria including the daughter of the President, Zahra Buhari who said that the looting ongoing in the country is proof that Buhari is not the problem, ‘misguided’.
Following the killings of protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, some hoodlums have resorted to breaking into shops and looting. Some Nigerian Youth and the daughter of the President have said that the “looting has shown that the Nigerian leader is not the problem”.
In response to these comments, The former Presidential Speaker wrote;
“It is misguided to say looting shows that General @MuhammaduBuhari is not the problem and Nigeria’s youths are the problem. Both Zahra Buhari and others who have said this are misguided. You can’t starve people by destroying the economy, then hoard food, and expect looting not to occur. It is human nature. #EndSARS was ignited by SARS, but it was not caused by SARS.
It was caused by making Nigeria the world headquarters for extreme poverty. By herdsmen killing and Nasir El-Rufai paying them and General Buhari claiming shock! SARS was just the last straw that broke the camel’s back! SARS is a symptom, not the disease. The disease is bad governance. A government that budgets ?3.2 billion for General Buhari’s food and travel in 2020, then increases the cost of fuel and power for the poorest of the poor, in the same week!
